You want to redirect your career or energize and focus on your job search. Maybe you are sending out resumes, applying for jobs, and reaching out to friends and family, but so far you aren’t getting the response you want. Or maybe you don’t know what you want to do, but you know you don’t want to do what you are doing (or have been doing). Where do you go from here?
Successful Career Transition—An Art, Not a Science
The New Job Market Paradigm
The job market is nothing like it used to be. The company as a “caretaker of careers” is dead. Thus individuals are essentially on their own to plan, shape and manage their careers. Jobs are shifting geographically. . . radically. And hiring systems and processes are changing rapidly, especially with the advent of mobile and web-based recruiting technologies.
There are increasing skills and experience gaps largely attributed to demographic/generationaly changes and education deficiencies. So employees are expected to excel is developing their professional skills and achieve relevant performance metrics. But then, being really good at what you do is no longer enough. Leaders must perform at the top of their games in every dimension.
- Communication skills
- Management and leadership ability
- Influence aptitude
- Results focus
- Industry fit
The bottom line is that professionals at every level must take charge of designing and managing their careers the same way a business owner creates a company strategy and executive plan. This is a daunting and complex task for just about anyone. And the best laid plans can change in an instant. So who do you call? A career coach, that’s who.
